A Border Patrol agent has been killed while another is in serious condition following an auto accident involving a bull in Brooks County.

Border Patrol spokesman Joe Treviño told Action 4 News that the accident took place on FM 755 three miles west of  U.S. Highway 281 around 11 p.m. Sunday.

According to reports, agents Mark Van Doren and Adelaido Martinez were in a patrol unit and heading west on FM 755 when they hit a bull.

It’s not clear who was driving but the patrol unit veered off the road and hit a tree.

Investigators said 40-year-old Van Doren was pronounced dead at the scene by a Brooks County justice of the peace.

Border Patrol officials reported that 37-year-old Martinez was taken by helicopter to Corpus Christi Memorial Hospital where he’s listed in serious condition.

Authorities reported that Martinez was in the hospital’s intensive care unit receiving care for multiple fractures and lacerations.

Agency officials reported that Van Doren was from Michigan while Martinez is from San Juan.

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) state troopers are investigating the wreck.

Under Texas state law, cattle and other livestock have the right-of-way on farm-to-market roads, ranch roads and state highways.
